What to do with speckled yellow/purple beans

I got some pretty beans today at the farmer's market, and I'm not sure how to use them.

They're pale waxy yellow with purple speckles and streaks, and much wider and wavier than regular yellow beans. The guy at the farmers' market called them rattlesnake beans, but aren't those usually green and fairly thin?

Anyway, any ideas on how I should cook them? They're very pretty, but too tough to be eaten raw.
